    Very nice Gary!

    What instruments are used starting at 1:57, is that French Horn or Trombone doubled with Bass Fulte or Alto Flute? It's pretty whatever it is! And so is the Flutes that come after that part... and all the rest of it too.

    Thanks for listening, David.
    The middle section of winds uses trumpet duet; 3 horns(the poorest sound);
    flute-English horn; flute, clarinet, bassoon. The piano & harp interlude
    bridges each section and accompanies all.

    Hi, Gary

    I see your Christmas album must be getting chock full by now!

    It's always such a fun surprise, to hear you being so -->omigosh< - traditional! hehe - Nice.

    I'm curious why you said the Horns were the "poorest sound"--? The GPO Horns can sound great - What I noticed with them in this recording is the same thing that I noticed with the strings - My friend, you're not using any Legato. The phrases are pumping with the attack constantly being triggered with each note. I think that's been something you've grappled with before - You're not sure how to use the Garritan Legato in your software?

    Also - the Variation One and/or Pitch Bend is just too much at times, Gary. It makes for some sour notes rather than natural sounding subtle variation.

    As always, feedback is intended to be helpful - I just had to mention the things I feel you could straighten out so your nice arrangement can be heard better.

    Thanks for listening, Randy.
    My purpose with this CD is to send ot to friends & family. Most of them
    listen to mostly pop tunes, so I think they would use the CD for "flying disks".....
    You're certainly right about the legato. In listening to last year's K1 Kontakt
    album, it was much easier to get sounds since the@#$% still furnished ambience for Mac. I experience continual frustration with it even after all the help I've received frrom this site. Simple is ALWAYS better.

    My favorite christmas song. I even learned to sing it in german.

    Even with the lack of legato it had a magical effect upon me.

    Hey, I forgot that it started snowing on the way home today and dusted the trees for a few hours. And with your music it's beginning to look a lot like......

    Thanks for listening, Phil.
    I've visited Seattle and area twice in the past few years: Olympia National Park and Seattle(for Alaskan Cruise.)
    I have a feeling that the wind from the surrounding bay must be chilly.
    Silent Night deffinitely evokes an emotional response.

    Thanks for listening, David.
    When you try to decide about songs for Christmas, there are
    so many good songs and so little time & space.
